    I grew up in the Austin area, and this hits everything that I would have pointed out! Glad you enjoyed your Texas trip! I’ve been enjoying seeing some of my hometown favorites make the list.

    If you’re looking for good BBQ in Austin, Franklin’s doesn’t disappoint except for massive lines. I’d recommend checking out La Barbecue on the Southside. Hands down, best BBQ I’ve ever had plus its in a great exploring location on the Southside. If you loved Georgetown, I’d highly recommend my hometown — Wimberley. It’s small enough to conquer in a half day. It’s about an hour south of Austin, right in between Austin and San Antonio actually. It’s got great shopping on the square, and summertime is the absolute best time to come because you can go swimming at Blue Hole or Jacob’s Well. Seriously, Google those. Pictures won’t do it justice, but so so so cool.

      Love that! Le Barbecue was recommended a lot, but we honestly just ran out of time. And OMGGGGG your hometown looks AWESOME!! The photos I found of Blue Hole and Jacob’s Well are so cool – I wish we knew about that before our trip!
